A 50-year-old Seattle man who told police that he was “way over a .08” and he is an alcoholic who drinks “all day, every day,” was arrested at 1:29 a.m. on Thursday, Oct. 10, in the 6400 block of westbound I-90. A police officer had stopped the driver after finding that he had a suspended license and four counts of Failure To Appear in court through a WA DOL check. The officer detected the odor of intoxicants. The driver failed his standard field sobriety test and was released after being processed. Police referred his citations and case to the prosecutor.

Fraud: A third party used a 56-year-old woman’s personal information to gain access to her Bank of American Visa account. The suspect changed the victim’s mailing address, and the bank’s fraud department prevented the change and flagged the account for extra security measures, according to the police report. Those measures failed and the new credit card was hacked two days later. The victim and her husband reported that the fraud was internal to the Bank of America. They did not, however, sustain any financial loss. The victim said that the bank provided little information about how the fraud happened.
